Obituary for David L. Ainsworth

David Linn Ainsworth of Jones, OK went to rest with God, Sunday Evening April 29th, 2018 at his residence in Jones, Ok. He was born April 14th, 1960 in OKC, OK to Leonard and Judy Ainsworth and raised in Spencer, OK. He moved to Jones, OK in about 1981 where he resided the majority of his Life and became known as Dave. Dave had the biggest heart of anyone around and would drop everything to help someone if he could.

Dave was happiest being outdoors and would spend most of his time with nature, that is where he felt his best and would have lived outside if his family would have let him. While his girls were growing up, he took them on many fishing, hunting, and trail walking adventures; he absolutely loved being a dad. His girls were there light of his life. When he was able to drive long distances, he would make adventures involving great road trips. He also made the best fishing buddy for sure! He had the best stories, and most of them were guaranteed to make you laugh. He could turn anything into a humorous lesson and the adventures usually had a lesson with teachings and stories.

If he wasn’t talking, he was singing. He loved music and taught his daughters, and pretty sure most everyone he cared for, that music moved and grew the soul.

He loved his furry companions too. He always had a “man’s best friend” by his side. Most memorable was a crazy Boston terrier named Little Man; most of us probably have a story about that crazy critter. His most recent is Mama Dog, one of the most loveable pit bulls ever, stole his heart about 3yrs ago when he found him at Lake Eufaula abandoned and couldn’t just leave her there. She sure kept him on his toes and motivated him when he needed it. He sure loved his Mama Dog.

Dave took pride in his work when he could work. Stories of Harder Concrete, The Wildlife Federation, and being “The Donut Man” were his favorite. Lessons of “how to not hurt your back” from Harder Concrete, “work for something you believe in” with the Wildlife Federation, and “have fun with what you do” while making donuts are what he spoke about the most. Our most favorite was his phrase “Time to make the donuts,” he somehow always made that funny. He was known for some of the best donuts around and he loved making them. He shared his love with the simple things such as putting heart into baking donuts. There is fellowship in feeding someone was one thing he taught his daughters to share with the world. If you want to help someone, feed them good food.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Judy (Granny) Ainsworth; grandparents, Jay and Lela Miller and Art and Retha Ainsworth.

He is survived by his Lifelong companion, Mischelle Mullen of Jones, OK; father, Leonard Ainsworth of Spencer, OK; sister & brother-in-law, Dana & Eddie Woods of Jones, OK; daughters and sons-in-laws, Gera & Troy Campbell of Jones, Rae & Jason Viviani of Spencer; his son Kevin Owens of Louisiana; Step-daughter, Mariah Kessinger of Norman; and his pride & joys, his 12 grandchildren, who affectionately called him G’Pa, include, Bradley, Tessa, Brock, Lela, Kayla, Lucas Hailey, Nora, Evelyn, Dean, JC, & Tye. He is also survived by nephews, Richard, Matt, Lance and Jay Woods.
